Propositions 84 / 1E
The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has released draft guidelines for distribution of competitive grants under Propositions 84 and 1E (available at http://www.water.ca.gov/irwm/index.cfm). Proposition 84 authorized $1 billion for the State’s IRWM grant program. The Colorado River Funding Area – which includes the Imperial, Borrego, and portions of Mojave IRWM regions – will receive approximately $36 million over the next few years. Funding awards will be competitive within the Funding Area.
Complimentary grant funds will be provided by Proposition 1E for storm water management and flood control projects. Proposition 1E authorized $300 million for the State’s IRWM grant program. Funding awards will be competitive across the State.
All projects submitted as part of the upcoming Proposition 84 / 1E grant applications must be consistent with the Coachella Valley IRWM Plan – they must be in our online Project Database!
